On the subject of low budgets and PD films, when Roger Corman (him again!) ran his own little company in the 50s/60s, Filmgroup, none of the movies were registered supposedly because it would cost money and film prints to do so. I recall a quote from him saying that instead of sending a print off to the LOC, he'd rather have it showing in a theatre or drive-in somewhere making money.

LOL, I read that too somewhere. But I bet he is regretting it today! I actually called the copyright office once to ask if it was possible to borrow a print of a film. The response was really funny:

CO: Are you the owner?
Me: No
CO: Then no you can't see it!
Me: Who can see it?
CO: Only the owner!
Me: Well how can I see a copy of the film?
CO: I don't know, but only the owner can see this one!
